Earlier this month we hosted the very first edition of ‘Grid Girl of the Year’ by PromoVisionModels. As MotoGP and WSBK takes place in over 13 countries, we wanted to celebrate all our gorgeous Grid Girls of the 2019 season from the paddocks all over the World. Fans had the opportunity to vote for their favourite Grid Girl amongst 70 beautiful women. On February 14, 2020 we announced the lucky winner: the ‘Grid Girl of the Year 2019’ is Areye from Thailand!
